Oh, interview. I read "Talking Transformers Movie Novels" and thought, "What, you mean like audio books?" Could also be those things they make for blind people that my sister listens to that require the big green cassette players.

Great interview, Hotrod.

A couple of thoughts:

Alan Dean Foster wrote:(on his body of work) Well, let's see...there are about 75 original novels, seven short story collections, the novelizations of many other films (the first three Alien films, for example), the story for the first Star Trek movie, scripts for radio plays, film reviews, science and travel articles...have a look around.

I found his scripting radio plays interesting because I kind of go in for that sort of thing. Wonder what kind of shows he's done.

Alan Dean Foster wrote:(on his favorite character in both novels) I'd have to say Optimus Prime. He strikes me as the kind of leader who'd just as soon sit and contemplate the universe instead of having to always be in charge. If he was human, he'd always be heaving a deep, reluctant sigh before having to charge off and save somebody.

That sounds very much like Beast Machines' Optimus Primal.

Again, great interview, Hotrod!
